Run/ Walk/ Bike/ Elliptical (Today: 4.34 miles; Running Total: 163.10!!! miles)
Day 199 of *Another* 100 Days of Good Karma.
This morning my mileage sat at 158.76 miles and I needed to get to 163 miles to meet my goal of 50 miles before surgery.
I was SOOOO close. I just needed 4.24 miles.
So I decided today was the day. I was going to reach 163 miles no matter how long it took.
I started by walking 0.52 miles to gym, intending to do the rest on the elliptical machine.
When I got to the gym both elliptical machines were already occupied.
I silently cursed the two women chatting and gossiping on the elliptical machines before climbing on a treadmill. I gave them evil side-eye looks for 1.0 mile while I secretly wished they’d twist an ankle.
I know, I know. Evil, right? But I had 50 miles to finish, dammit!
When they finally (FINALLY!!) relinquished the elliptical machines I jumped on right away and did 2.3 miles. I really only needed 2.2 miles but I did an extra 0.1 just in case I added wrong. I needed that 50 miles.
Sweaty and happy I finished up by walking 0.52 miles home.
So, the math:
0.52 + 1.0 + 2.3 + 0.52 = 4.34 miles.
158.76 + 4.34 = 163.10 miles.
Today’s silver lining: BOOM! 50 miles in 18 days!
What’s your silver lining today? I love comments!
